After learning that my insurance would not pay for treatment after 9 days (I found out on a Thursday afternoon), I was told by my counselor not to worry, that she would "help" me before I had to leave on Monday. I did not know where I would be living, whether I would be able to start IOP somewhere, when I would be able to return to work, etc. I was allowed to make some phone calls from the Residence Manager's office and to use the computer there for a couple of hours on Thursday evening (thanks to the Res. Mgr on duty !). However, I was not able to use a computer after that evening. I advocated for my sobriety thereafter (e.g., that I did not want to have to return to my home alone when I knew there was alcohol/wine in my home), and I was told to attend classes and group instead of applying for sober housing near where I work.

All women was a strength of the facility. I learned a great deal about myself and issues which I felt had no solution to other than drugs.

It was a women only facility. It was clean, comfortable and they give you good healthy food. However, they only had 12-step and it was not that open minded to anything else.

I have & will continue to recommend Res.XII. It is an excellent women's only facility with qualified & compassionate staff. They provide the tools so necessary to remain sober when the program is completed. It was a nice, safe and clean facility. The staff is compassionate and knowledgeable. However, there were too many hours spent listening to mandatory lectures with no consideration to the pain involved with going through withdrawals.

Residence XII made me feel safe and understand the "ism" behind my alcoholism. I still attend their yearly holiday celebration and attend their on site AA meeting when it's my birthday month to receive my coin. This place helped me realize I DO have an addiction to alcohol and I wasn't alone in that struggle.

Residence XII has no mental health counselors or psychologists. There is an inattention to the facilities (residents can only communicate for 10 minutes twice a day via the residence's four pay phones, and usually one didn't work). Rules were inconsistent, ineffective and punitive....All of these things matter to people trying to re-build their self esteem. Every place is imperfect but ... If you are able to visit the residence before you enter or place a loved one there, do so. Ask the tough questions. I know this is hard when your life or someone's life that you love is unraveling. The food served was nutritious and really pretty good. Generally the residents are diverse, very interesting and people you can learn a lot from and get some heartfelt support. Good luck to everyone struggling with so many issues during an exceptionally tough time.

Residence XII provides a solid foundation to begin a life in recovery and excels at addressing issues unique to women with addictions. But regardless of what Residence XII promotes, they are not a dual diagnosis treatment center. They try but fail and this is crucial because misdiagnosed and unmanaged mental health issues lead to relapse. After Residence XII, I stayed sober for 15 years and continued to be involved in the organization. But when I relapsed, I looked elsewhere. I didn’t want another crash course in 12 Step work, meditation or basic life skills classes. Although helpful and necessary, these tools are not an adequate substitute for a psychiatric assessment conducted by a qualified psychiatrist, a comprehensive treatment plan, individualized counseling and access to effective non-addicting psychiatric medications. I am sober today because I was able to get this type of treatment and more importantly, I am happy. There appears to be a unspoken code among Residence XII Alum that any critique of the organization is a reflection of the person or the quality of their sobriety; only disgruntled people complain. Let me be clear, I am not unhappy with the treatment I received there. I only think it could be better and not saying so prevents the program from improving. Residence XII introduces fundamental tools critical to maintaining sobriety in a safe, structured, environment. It is a perfectly adequate rehab that is appropriate for most people. However, if you have been diagnosed with a mental illness there are better facilities.

My daughter picked this one because it is run by women for women and she needed that. They always answered my questions and I participated in the activities/classes offered for loved ones. She received great counseling there and did the 6 month after care too.

Residence XII changed my life for so many reasons, but they created a safe environment to learn about my addiction and gave me the tools to deal with it when I left treatment. I recommend women there all of the time!

I feel they should of tried to work with my insurance company so I could finish treatment. I was the oldest in with a bunch of young adults who didn't know how to behave. They had no control of the other patients- poor management.

I was overwhelmed with my addiction and 4 children. I learned how to cope with those feelings and more and my children too. I was given a new way of being at this facility. Worth more than I could say.

Residence 12 was great for me. A woman who really did not to be around men in early sobriety. It was strictly women. 17 years clean and sober thanks to AA. No relapse! Yippee!

My experience was very positive with the exception of my individual counselor. I have been told she no longer works there, which is another positive. Helped me to get sober.
